Archiving Culture(s) - which narratives write (club culture) history? (German spoken language)

Emergent Bass, the new interdisciplinary event series at Mensch Meier enters its second round!
We want to connect to the history of Black and Queer people who have long celebrated the dancefloor as places of resistance.
Through music, input and performances, we want to pay respect to those whose stories are too often not heard in the mainstream.
House and techno music were born in Black and queer communities that used the dancefloor as a place for collective healing.

Trauma inscribes itself in our bodies and with dance and movement we can rebalance and rebuild.
We use archives on subculture to uncover the Afro-Diasporic roots of house, techno and bass music.
If you love underground club culture but are unclear about its origins, then you’ve come to the right place.
With a focus on bass music and Afro-diasporic rhythms, we want to celebrate the second edition.
